2 Beware, for disaster is coming to those who plan wickedness,
who lie on their beds plotting evil.
When morning shines on them, they carry out their plans
simply because they have the power to do so.
2 They see fields they want and take them.
They see houses, and they grab them up.
They persecute each landowner, taking all that belongs to him—
including his freedom and his children’s inheritance.
3 Eternal One: Look at what I am doing:
I am preparing a calamity for you people,
A yoke from which you will not be able to free your necks.
You will not be able to walk with your noses in the air
Because the times will be disastrous indeed.
